Zombies On A Plane! - New WORLD WAR Z Trailer

Ben Umstead, East Coast Editor
It's been a long, long time coming, but a movie adaptation of Max Brooks' best-selling book World War Z (unsurprisingly with little resemblance to the tome other than its title) is in fact coming. With a June 21st release date in the States, the Brad Pitt starring, Marc Forster helmed Zombie-o-rama gets a new trailer this fine, largely zombie free day, one with a strong emphasis on how to deal (or not deal) with familial relations during the oncoming z-pocalypse, as well as some globe trekking and questing. Yes, it still looks and feels a lot like Spielberg's War Of The Worlds, and sure, that also means production is what you'd expect from a summer studio release right now -- i.e. loud and grim with things flying every which way. But when many of those things are zombies running at Olympic speeds what is there left to do but grin at such chaos.

Take a gander at the trailer below and ask yourself the question, who seems more alive and kicking... the zombies or Brad Pitt?

    Wow... this is going to suck.

  • Scott Dorian Dancer

    looks cool. dont know if i am big on the hyper katamacy zombies though. this movie looks like it may be a half hour long. no way we can run from those zombies.

  • mortis rex

    Am i the only one who thinks this looks more like an adaptation of the video game "Lemmings" than a zombie movie?

  • Brian Clark

    Ha! Comment of the week.

  • Mehaillien Thundercross

    I wonder is Brad is drafting his speech for the Razzies yet, or maybe he'll just wing it.

  • That One Guy

    Anyone notice someone took the scene with the bus tilting over by zombies and replaced the soldiers guns from the first trailer with walkie talkies?
    I didn't think that scene needed to change but now just it looks like they have everything under-control. Figured it must be the pg-13 rating kicking in.

    If I didn't know anything about World War Z I would have no idea what this film is about.

    The airplane outbreak is new from the first trailer. Wonder if there are any other major sequences that haven't been teased. Personally, I thinks it looks interesting. But I haven't been to a theater in years so I'll wait for it on video.

  • mortis rex

    NEIN! NEIN!! NEIN!!! NEIN!!!! NEIN!!!!! The only thing epic about this one is just how hard its going to suck. I for one am boycotting this piece of sick donkey excrement. CGI zombies in a PG-13 production with A-list celebrities that looks more like one of those crappy natural disaster movies... what's not to hate??? Quite possibly there were more zombies behind the camera than in front of it.

    *Forster. I'm not really seeing the same "look and feel" as Spielberg's WotW. This trailer seems to emphasize the military action angle, which is disappointing to me. It's like the producers are saying, "Don't worry, you're not going to be stuck with Brad Pitt's family for very long before we get to the huge explosions."

    "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim..." yeah yeah, we get it! Sheesh!! Effing lawyers!
